Boston is one of America’s oldest cities. Known for Fenway Park, wicked good lobster rolls, prestigious universities, and Dunkin’ Donuts, there are endless ways to enjoy yourself in Beantown.
Considering Boston is chock-full of historical landmarks and old buildings, it’s safe to say that there are a few haunted sites that are worth checking out.
At almost every corner of the city, there’s a site that is infamous for its hauntings. What’s more, there’s a wide variety of venues that are said to contain ghostly spirits. You can find haunted houses, cemeteries, and historical landmarks, all with a unique twisted backstory.
Below, you’ll get a sliver of insights about each of Boston’s most popular haunted locations. We also encourage you to consider taking part in our Boston Ghost Tour to see the bone-chilling attraction in person.

The Old Granary Burial Ground is the third oldest memorial site in Boston. Here, you can see the headstones of some of the country’s most notable figures. Benjamin Franklin’s parents, Abiah and Josiah Franklin, are currently resting at Old Granary.
Several people who have visited the site at night have captured images of supposedly ghostly figures roaming around. Whether it’s neighboring ghosts or Franklin’s parents, it’s an eerie view into history you won’t want to miss.
The Boston Athenaeum is perhaps one of the spookiest locations on our ghost tour, even if you’re a skeptic. From books made of human skin and several photos of eerie cemeteries, it’s no wonder that countless people rush to this site annually.
However, the ghosts that are said to roam around the Athanaeum aren’t your typical sinister spirits. Some visitors claim to feel enlightened when they encounter specific figures, such as the ghost of Reverend Harris, whose spectral presence appears in the library. The writer Nathaniel Hawthorne even saw the Reverend once reading his own obituary.
Chapels and cemeteries frequently attract visitors from the other world. After all, it’s where the dead are laid to rest. The King’s Chapel and Burying Ground in Boston is no exception.
The site is well-preserved and sports a Victorian-era design. People who visit the cemetery claim to see shadow figures roaming around at night. The two spirits thought to be held responsible for the haunting are Elizabeth Pain and Joseph tapping.
Shhhh. It’s a secret.
There are six more spectral stops on our standard Boston Ghost Adventure.
